Dan Soltis

I am a second-year doctoral student in the Counseling Psychology program. I earned my undergraduate degree in English and Political Science from Dickinson College and am finalizing my master's thesis from West Chester University of Pennsylvania, which examines identity dynamic enactments of people who identify as queer. Broadly, my research interests are focused on marginalized social identities, including sexual and gender minorities, non-religion, and disability, particularly focusing on areas of minority stress, community variables, and mental health outcomes. I am currently collaborating on a study exploring body image dissatisfaction for those who identify as bisexual and developing a study on suicidal ideation risk factors for LGBTQ young adults. I am also beginning practicum work at the University of Houston – Clear Lake Counseling Services. In my down time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, and watching Netflix with my cat, Bartleby. desoltis@uh.edu
